If there is one thing North Scottsdale knows, it is beautifying through the arts. Keeping with that mantra is our North Scottsdale Lifestyle Arts + Makers Issue. There are so many community businesses and organizations that offer us the chance to explore, indulge and experience the colorful community we live in. 

Looking for a farm-to-table experience with fresh ingredients and a down-home feel? We found a new restaurant that is sure to satisfy with an array of delicious dishes. And if you are looking to travel nearby to find eclectic art with a fascinating history and photo-worthy backdrops, there are three destinations that are a short drive for family-friendly fun or the perfect day date.

A day at the theater is the ideal way to delve into culture right in our own backyard. The costume designer for an upcoming show at the Herberger Theater gives perspective audiences a rare sneak peek of his inspirations for the design of a popular tale playing there this month.

If you’re looking to renovate your home but are lacking the motivation or artistic know-how, the well-known blogger Recipe Girl gives us an insider look at her kitchen remodel, complete with insights from her designer on how to choose looks that compliment your lifestyle and love for entertaining. 

And no issue on the arts would be complete without a local charity that aims to stamp out poverty with a community-focused imitative that literally helps paint a picture.

The weather is perfect, and so are the opportunities to get out and experience all the amazing art and makers we have right here in North Scottsdale. I know my calendar is already full.

Enjoy being creative this month!
